FSK Lecture Series: Ten Restaurants that Changed America

From Delmonico’s to Sylvia’s to Chez Panisse, food historian Paul Freedman will present a daring and original history of dining out in America as told through ten legendary restaurants. Combining a historian’s rigor with a foodie’s palate, he will reveal how the history of our restaurants reflects nothing less than the history of America itself. Whether charting the rise of our love affair with Chinese food through San Francisco’s fabled The Mandarin, evoking the richness of Italian food through Mamma Leone’s, or chronicling the rise and fall of French haute cuisine through Henri Soulé’s Le Pavillon, Freedman uses each restaurant to tell a wider story of race and class, immigration, and assimilation.
